Hosted in inimitable style by Petroc Trelawny, the Last Night of the 2019 BBC Dubai Proms brings everyone together for the kind of musical party every great music festival should have at Dubai Opera on Friday 22 March 2019.
The BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Singers, baritone Roderick Williams, Ksenija Sidorova and the Dubai Opera Festival Chorus are all presided over by conductor Richard Farnes whose Proms debut took place in 2018.
Alongside the traditional musical elements of the Last Night, Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 and Rule, Britannia!, the programme includes Stanford’s Songs of the Sea, the fiery passion of tango, and of Carmen, an exquisite Shakespeare setting for 16 soloists and orchestra by Vaughan Williams, and much more.
Now in its 124th season, the BBC Proms is a much-loved British tradition that aims to bring the best classical music to as wide an audience as possible.
Following the huge success of the inaugural BBC Dubai Proms in 2017 we are delighted this iconic Festival will return to Dubai Opera to be staged over four days from 19 to 22 March 2019.
The audiences in 2017 were overwhelmingly enthusiastic and welcoming and host BBC Radio 3 presenter Petroc Trelawny will once again lead us through the five concerts of the 2019 BBC Dubai Proms towards the Last Night of the Proms – Dubai style.
Alongside the main concerts of the BBC Dubai proms runs a wide-ranging programme of outreach and education activities including pre-concert talks, open rehearsals, chamber music coaching and a foyer performance with young musicians, masterclasses, a choral workshop with local Arabic school choirs and the creation of a new ensemble: the Dubai Opera Festival Chorus.
We look forward to welcoming music lovers of all ages to engage with this programme – and maybe even perform with the DOFC! As in 2017, we are enormously grateful to the British Council for their support in making the learning programme possible.
